Shame on you, LiA, for kicking a man when he's down! Simply having a 1988 GD recording in the house must be galling enough for Cliff.

...or did he score a copy of the Bonus Disc through black-ops channels, without having subscribed, like someone else I know?

And actually cassette transfers can sound brighter than reel originals, but with a hard edge to the extra brightness, reflecting more distortion than information in the upper frequencies. A good example is the Morning Dew from 4-17-69 in Download Series 8, the first half of which is from a cassette master and the second half from a reel master. This may reflect different equalizing of the two parts, to make them sound right together, but the fact remains.
